I love this one. I will definitely restock, but not in a tin. Just a 50 g bag. But it is wonderful.

Coldbrew Sipdown (317/299)

I really enjoyed this blend while it lasted, but hoarding it only lets it go stale. So I made up the last of this and drank it down happily. Goodbye old friend.

Yay!! We’re down to 300 teas. But I’m sad to see it go. It takes me back to my childhood in Michigan where my mom had a grapevine and in the summer we’d have tons of grapes and grape juice and wonderfulness. I love this tea, but it was time for it to leave us…goodbye, beloved tea!!!

My migraine is finally starting ease so I’ve moved on to my next coldbrewed tea. This tastes vaguely familiar. Like I’ve had it a million times before. Because it is. There’s really nothing special about this.

I’m falling out of love with rooibos teas, because they’re all muddling together for me. Sad.

I’ve got tons of this because I have both loose leaf and a tin of teabags. But that’s a-okay, because I really enjoy it cold.

I have a migraine of epic proportions, so I’ll just say this is yummy.

Coldbrew and this is amazing. It’s light and refreshing and tastes like fresh concord grapes. Not overwhelmingly so, but that’s the flavor I’m walking away with and it’s so good. Concord grapes warm from the sun, grassy summer in every sip. I want to do a sipdown of this because it would be easy, but I also want to hoard it forever.

But it’s 2 years old, so sipdown it is.

Ugh. Liquid floral soap. I am not sorry to see this go.

We bid a sad farewell to our dear friend Eric Northman. He served us well and even introduced my wifey to a like of coldbrewed black teas. But alas, it is time for him to go meet the sun. Perhaps he will see Godric on the other side and be happy for it.


And Nora. They will be a happy family once again.

Sipdown (322/304)

I was sad that I hadn’t accomplished any sipdowns today, so when I ran out of coldbrews, I made two cups of this one.

It was…okay. Just okay. The first cup I only doctored with sugar and while I got some vanilla, I mostly got astringent black tea. The second cup, I added a splash of milk hoping to up the creaminess and round off the bite, but instead it just weakened it. I’ve got too many other vanilla blacks to waste my time with a reorder of this.

This tea is in the sipdown tins pile and with good reason. It’s okay, fairly good, actually, but it’s not something I ever reach for…

…okay, now that I’ve given it a shake and the sugar has mixed into this coldbrew, my opinion is changing. The strawberry is coming forward and while I’d call this a strawberries and cream more than shortcake, it’s still yummy and deserving of the 94 rating.

Staying in the sipdowns, though.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
